Product information "Dwarf Walnut Tree Dwarf Karlik®"

The dwarf walnut tree Dwarf Karlik® grows really compact, unmistakably dwarfish. If the compact growth of the compact walnut varieties Lara and Europa is mainly due to the early harvest and the ability to also produce fruit on the side buds, then it is the short distance between the nodes of the dwarf walnut Dwarf Karlik® No. 5 that makes the plant so small. You have to imagine this: the classic walnut Franquette grows maybe 7-8 meters tall, Lara remains between 4-5 m and the walnut Europa even at 3.5 m, and a 20-year-old dwarf walnut Dwarf Karlik® reaches only 180 cm! The walnut is thus a compatible garden plant and thanks to Dwarf Karlik® it can finally be grown in containers and of course on the same level with many other plants in garden beds.
 
Short Description of the Dwarf Walnut Tree Dwarf Karlik®
 
Fruits: The fruits of Dwarf Karlik® No. 5 ripen almost grape-like, always 2-6 together; they are medium-sized, 2.6 cm long, 3.1 cm wide; the shells can be easily cracked, they are usually clean at the seam and the nutmeat can be removed as a whole. The nut kernel is yellowish with brownish veins and weighs 4.6 grams.
 
Maturity/harvest: The walnut Dwarf Karlik® ripens in the second half of September, which is early enough for all Central European locations to be always ripe.
 
Flavour: Good, intense nut flavour.
 
Use: The nuts can be eaten fresh or stored, or they can even be processed; as a small garden tree, Dwarf Karlik delivers a reasonable harvest. But above all, such a small nut tree, richly draped with nuts, is a sensation in the garden and a real eye-catcher!
 
Plant spacing/size: The dwarf walnut tree Dwarf Karlik® reaches just 180 cm after 20 years... Calculate about the same width, so that a plant spacing of 2 m results.
 
Location/growth: Dwarf Karlik® needs a sunny, but well-ventilated location. Due to the short distance between the internodes, the leaves are very close, so there is always a certain risk of Botrytis and other fungal diseases. With good drying this danger is reduced. Remember that walnut trees usually do not grow very well in the year of planting, by then develop well after they establish themselves.
 
Pollination: Dwarf Karlik® is protandric, that is, the male flowers bloom a little earlier than the female flowers, but there is almost always an overlap. So you can count on good fertilisation without pollinators. In addition, walnuts are wind pollinators, and at the time of flowering they also have good chances of being pollinated by foreign trees in the neighbourhood (up to 200 m and more away). Alternatively, some branches with male flowers of larger nut trees can be cut and then painted over the female flowers of the Dwarf Karlik® tree. Dwarf Karlik® is incredibly fertile and starts yielding very early; we see blossoms in the nursery already in the 2nd year; in the garden, the plant will start to bear fruit from the 2nd or 3rd year.
 
Training: Basically, you just have to let this dwarf walnut tree grow. It branches naturally and so, as with other walnut varieties, a beautiful crown develops almost without intervention. With Dwarf Karlik®, however, actively ensure that the crown does not become too dense and that is can dry out well.
 
Pot cultivation: Since the dwarf walnut tree Dwarf Karlik® grows slowly, it must also be changed very slowly to larger pots. I would start with a 20-25 L container, and then go up every 5 years to 5 L more volume. Ensure good drainage by providing the bottom 10-15 cm of the container with drainage material (stones, gravel, polystyrene or something similar). For overwintering, place the walnut container in a sheltered, shady spot, protect the container with insulating material, and in the first few years, tie up the trunk with jute sacks. In pots, we recommend using container plant substrate; the best, of course, is our Fruitful Soil No. 1.
